I was reading the blog of one of my dearest friends, Vicky, and I realized that what she said was right on. Basically, she didn’t believe that God would give her a safe pregnancy or that she would have a friend that she could be pregnant with. She didn’t believe that something that GOOD could happen to her.
I know that God gives me good things all the time. Heck, the things from God are usually GREAT! This job that I have now, I firmly believe came from God. My husband – totally a gift from God (but don’t let that go to your head Frank! 😉 ). Family and friends that I love – awesome. Lots of good, amazing things.
But in this one area, after years of watching my friends having children, I’ve started to think that God just wouldn’t let me have that. This thought isn’t based in experiences I’ve had in other areas of my life – my life is abundant with God’s blessings, even in the disappointments I’ve had. And maybe because I’ve wanted children for so long and had to wait, and then when we started trying, it has been a trail of problems, I’ve started to think that God can’t touch this area of our lives. I’ve started to think that while God can do great things, He just can’t do them in this area.
And that’s just not true. He can do something about this.
